Seated Row using Stretch Reflex

Welcome back! Hope you enjoy Episode #2 about Stretch Reflex using the Seated Row.

Arnold doing T-Bar Row

Have you heard of “Newtons 2nd Law of Motion”? Its about Force creating Momentum.(Very Cool!)

Rent the movie “Pumping Iron”. In the movie there is an awesome example of Arnold doing bent-over T-Bar Rows using, of course, a lot of weight.  Arnold’s T-Bar Row is a really the best example I’ve ever seen. And is really cool to watch. Of course, I don’t recommend people start off with such an advanced exercise, however, the basic movement can be applied to any form of exercise, mild or advanced.

I’m really excited to share this part of my training that helped me during my Power-Lifting and Bodybuilding career. In the video I’m using a more moderate form of “Stretch Reflex” than Arnold was using. At 74, I have to go a little easier!

Here is another great article about Arnold and this row also: The Right Way To Do Rows, from Jason Ferruggia’s Renegade Strength & Conditioning website.  Thanks Jason.
